With rumors swirling about recently, New Vegas senior producer Jason Bergman provides an update noting that indeed the next DLC will be announced soon. Prior to its release, we will have a new patch.
On behalf of all of the hard-working teams at Bethesda and Obsidian, I'd like to give you an update what we've been working on these past few months.
Well, here's what happened: our next DLC release (announcement coming very soon, we promise) has been complete while we worked on getting a patch ready for you all. We didn't want to just release more DLC before we had a patch that would improve the overall New Vegas experience.
The good news, is that we do have such a patch and it's been handed off to the necessary platform owners. It should be released in the next couple of weeks on 360, PS3 and PC (can't be more specific than that, I'm afraid, although PC will almost certainly get it first).
So what's in that patch? First and foremost, optimizations and stability improvements. While there are bug fixes, our core focus was on improving stability and performance. We worked directly with first party platform owners to identify issues, and we have fixed a great deal of the crashes and lockups that people were experiencing. In addition, we scoured the forums and this patch includes weapon balance tweaks and other requested fixes.
We know we're not done yet. There's still more work to do, and we'll be monitoring the forums very carefully following the release of this patch, looking for more issues. We do have another update planned further down the line.
So I'd like to apologize for the radio silence. Hopefully you'll be pleased with the enormous amount of work we've put into this update over the last few months, and will enjoy the rest of our DLC releases. We have some pretty cool stuff coming soon. Stay tuned!
